    WMP (XP)

    I am not getting any sound out of windows media player, I found a restore point which got the sound back but it stuffed up too many other things, I tried Winamp which works OK but I couldn't find an equalizer in it so it doesn't sound as good. I get sound out of other stuff just not WMP.

    An ideas on how to get my sound back out of WMP would Be appreciated.

    Let me ask a stupid question first: have you checked the setting of the volume slider at the bottom of the WMP window?

    Yes, I have tested everyting to confirm that it is nothing else but WMP not outputting.
    Wnen I did the system restore it worked, other apps are putting out signal OK, it has to be something with WMP.

    Another stupid question: have you tried F8? (it toggles "mute" on / off)

    When I did the rollback it worked OK which suggests that it is not a problem with the mute and I have other apps that work OK and the mute does not help when pressing the mute button or the mute check box from the system tray.

    BUT when I hit F8 with WMP running it worked ! Uuntil I hit F8 a few more times and the volume decreased with each keydown which meant I lost it again. Played around a bit more and found that the F9 key increased the level.

    So it seems that the F8 and F9 are peculiar to WMP.

    So it seems you win again! Thank you.

    Apparently, the meaning of the keys has changed between versions. In WMP 9 and 10, F8 is mute (toggle), in WMP 11, F8 is decrease volume (while F7 is mute and F9 is increase volume).
